Replacement speaker makes your FT-817/857 sound like a new radio!

***A quick and easy upgrade for any FT-817***

Powerful 2 Watt speaker makes your radio sound louder and brighter.

Mylar cone is waterproof - unlike the paper/card cone on the stock radio - great for portable operating.

Suitable for all versions of the FT-817 and FT-857.

Easy to fit. Click here for FT-817 instructions.

Don't want to fit it yourself? Stephen M0HET will fit it for you. Click here for his details.

Price is for one (1) speaker. We recommend that you keep one in stock as a spare.

W = 57 mm H = 12 mm. Likely to be suitable for FT-897 (not confirmed).

 This item is stocked as a result of a customer recommendation. He loved his replacement speaker and thought more people should have access to this great product. Thanks to Chris (G7DDN).

    FT-817 replacement speaker

    Posted by Jamie - KM4WYO on 14th Jan 2020

    Bought two and replaced one in a 20 year old FT-817 and a FT-857. I think the rubber that the speaker comes with was enough not to worry about the old seal for my 817. I did bend in the speaker bracket a little to ensure fit. Worked in the 857 as well, no problem installing.

    Much better than the stock speaker, but I still need more basses for WFM mode.

    Ideal replacement

    Posted by Adrian on 25th Aug 2019

    My original paper coned speaker had deteriorated, partly through getting wet, and this replacement works well. I carefully removed the rubber gasket from the old speaker, using a craft knife, to re-use. With this, the new speaker fits perfectly.

    Regret loudspeaker does not sound right. I think due to not being securely clamped, should be supplied with new O rings.

    Replacement FT817 Speaker

    Posted by Anthony Enright on 20th Apr 2019

    Much better than original speaker, a bit tricky to fit in conjunction with Sotabeams filter mod. But with a bit of care and measuring and hot melt glue it fits just fine. Great mod.

    Excellent speaker

    Posted by Bas PE4BAS on 2nd Oct 2018

    Received the speaker well packed. Replaced it in about 10 minutes. It was the most easy mod for my FT-817. Speaker sounds good. Quality is better as the original one and it is humidity resistant which is important when using the radio in the field.
